We remember today the apparition of Our Lady at Fatima. At the conclusion of his homily at the canonization of Francisco Marto and his sister Jacinta, two of the visionaries of Fatima, the Pope Francis said: “With Mary's protection, may we be for our world sentinels of the dawn, contemplating the true face of Jesus the Savior, resplendent at Easter. Thus may we rediscover the young and beautiful face of the Church, which shines forth when she is missionary, welcoming, free, faithful, poor in means and rich in love.”
